    Alex Maleev's art is beautiful. There's a brilliant and sharp intensity to the art that is complemented by the amazing details and colors. There is so much energy in this issue through the art. Read Full Review

    Still, the art is amazing and there are enough good moments to make this issue shine. Bendis and Maleev are a top notch team. I am interested to see more however, as this issue isn't entirely fulfilling. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Williamson Jan 2, 2019

    A decently written book that carries tension when required, but is largely oddly relaxing thanks to Maleev's illustration, and helps creatively provide some exposition for the series going forward. Read Full Review

    After a better-than-normal fourth issue, Scarlet #5 misses the landing " pretty hard at that. Read Full Review

    This issue is probably my least favorite so far. There's nothing to grab onto. Scarlet has yet to display any genuine traits that make her interesting or even charismatic. In the context of these five issues, she seems to be rebelling for the sake of it but I have no idea what for other than some generic speeches. Plot wise, it's slow and meandering; there's nothing driving this story. It all feels empty and dull. However, the issue does win points for a very sweet tribute to Stan Lee and I loved that very much. Read Full Review
